Made of natural materials, there are sconces fashioned in any number of shapes, from simple rectangles, semi-circles, stars, and cylinders to an inverted semi-circular stair step shape known as the ziggurat. There are many materials used including clay, ceramics, glass and various metals. Regardless of what style you choose, you will love the luminosity that filters through the sconce in a soft, ambient light. With the current technology in lighting, you will never have to squint when looking directly at them while lit.
Don't forget the living room. This is one area that you certainly should to install sconce lighting in. If you have a fireplace, position a sconce near each of the two upper corners, or even halfway down each side. This will make for a very romantic setting. What if you don't own a fireplace? Try the same setup with your TV stand. One place in your living room which you should consider placing wall sconces is your doorway. Imagine how welcome your visitors will feel when they walk through.
Sconces help to illuminate darker areas in patios or gardens, making it possible to see clearer certain obstacles that may cause falls or accidents. Imagine going home in the night only to take a fall by tripping over some toys that your kids left out before retiring for the night.
Candle sconces also differ in size. They typically have a height 15 inches and project 7 inches from the wall. The price of candle sconces may range anywhere from $60 to more than $100. Brass sconces are really a good addition to anyone‘s home. It can be a great heirloom too, which can be passed on from generation to generation.
The first place I waned to decorate was my dining room. I chose a couple of electric metal wall sconces to go in there. I placed two of the sconces on either side of the entryway and two more at the back of the room. I also inserted a dimmer switch so I can set the mood while eating, or turn them up all the way when I need full light. After I installed them, they looked absolutely stunning. And even better, they matched my chandelier perfectly.
